(Wallace, Biggie's estate and his widow, singer Faith Evans, sued the City of Los Angeles in 2001. After a July 2005 mistrial, the case is currently in a holding pattern, according to Wallace's attorney Perry Sanders. Sanders said the suit "alleges that certain (Los Angeles) police officers were involved in his (Biggie's) homicide," and that the city has "a pattern and practice in place that facilitated officers participating in unlawful conduct." The criminal case also remains open and an "active criminal investigation is going on as we speak," according to Sanders.)

Q: What did you want to accomplish with "Notorious," and what do you hope audiences come away with?
A: Everyone who's going to see the movie, they're going to see a lot of negative things. But they need to not focus on the negative. They need to see a life that was going the wrong way but made it into something good. The message is make the best of it. Take the talent you have, take the energy, and make the best of it. Don't focus on the negative, focus on the positive.
